Cat

The following story was written for Bulbul’s Bubble #TWT Twenty Words Tuesday. Thank you to Bulbul for hosting this fun writing exchange & choosing my suggestion ‘cat‘ for this week’s prompt! Please also take some time to read Bulbul’s wonderful interpretation of the prompt, as well as the stories of prompt participants.


Little creature. You’ve been such a friend. Grey, pink, orange. Sharp and soft. Protector, familiar, judge. You’ve taught me lots.

Music

Music plays
Time stopping
& going inside
Of the audacity
Of sound’s many
Possibilities

The beautiful
Night air
Cradling
Wonderful tones
About impossible
Possibilities

To the tune
Of poetry
Melting
Glowing within
From bird-like
Beings

Telling stories
Of love &
Love lost

I remember
Our bodies
Dancing
Through the
Nights
Emotions on
Our skin
Glowing beings
Making things

Love
A lonely
Afterthought
& also everywhere
Within us

Fortuitous dawn
Reminding us
Of all rejuvenation
Resurrection even

Singing our own
Songs now
The city caring
In movements
